The Enhanced Wireless Consortium (EWC) has published its draft specification, designed to quickly bring to market higher-speed wireless Lans.
The consortium supports the IEEE 802.11n standard which is already the subject of fierce negotiations between various leading suppliers, but the EWC has the support of key players such as Intel, Cisco, Broadcom and Atheros.
The EWC draft specification is designed as a compromise between two technical approaches promoted by different companies to achieve 802.11n.
The 802.11n standard promises to deliver wireless Lan connectivity speeds of at least 100mbps, as opposed to the current maximum of around 54mbps.
